Embedded text or transcriptIn Darkest Soho - It's no fun looking for dinner with all Scotland Yard on the
job everywhere heavily disguised, the big cissies. Le Cheval Blanc Le Chat D'Or Le Chien
Bleu. Trouble on the N.W. Frontier : So the House of Lords has decided that something must
be done about the rabbit menace. Evidently Lord Londonderry's chance to bomb something has
come at last. Water Situation : In view of the usual drought, Geoffrey Shakespeare, the
Govt.'s own water diviner, is to be given a try-out on the Cabinet next week. Much
insurance is being done against the possibility of Old Sealed Lips having water on the
brain after his recent worries. The Popular Front Trade Union troubles among Spanish
bullfighters - Even the bulls refuse to work unless shown the red flag. Ringer by Colonel
Blimp Gad, sir, Lord Ballyhoo is right. These non-Fascists should be stopped from hanging
about the Oswald Hall trying to injure policemen by kicking them in the feet with their
ribs. Hot Derby Tip cha-cha : Elaborate precautions are being taken to keep all dark about
the American importation Schnozzle which is expected to win by a nose. It has been put
around that the horse is a human being and not a horse, but you can't fool Low. It's
obviously a horse.
